Let’s sing a little song about the words we say To make people smile every single day. Friendly words are what we use So think about the words you choose. Hi and Hello and How Are You? Are friendly greeting words through and through Another friendly thing that you can say Is “You look very pretty today.” But if you say “pee-yew, you stink”, That’s just not so nice, don’t you think. Gross and yuck and disgusting Are not friendly words for you and me. So use nice words and then you’ll see, It’s so cool to be friendly. So use nice words and then you’ll see, It’s so cool to be friendly.

Under, over, in and out, Is what we’re gonna sing about. So please listen carefully, And you will learn along with me. Under is a word that means below, Like the fish swim under water, this we know. Now I’ll show you just exactly what I mean, you see, So keep your eyes on me. (demonstrate under) CHORUS Over is a word that means above or across, Like a bridge over the lake or the ball over we toss. Now I’ll show you just exactly what I mean, you see, So keep your eyes on me. (demonstrate over) CHORUS In is a word that means to enter, Like you’ve come inside or walked into the center. Now I’ll show you just exactly what I mean, you see, So keep your eyes on me. (demonstrate in) CHORUS Out is a word that means away, Like you’re out of school and went outside to play. Now I’ll show you just exactly what I mean, you see, So keep your eyes on me. (demonstrate out) CHORUS

A rhyme is when you repeat a sound again, It usually happens at the end Of a line in a song or poetry, Now let’s try it, you and me. Time to rhyme, fill in the blanks if you know The missing word, ready, set, go! During class we sit in our seat, We do not stand up on our (pause) feet. We brush our teeth before we go to bed, Then on the pillow we rest our (pause) head. CHORUS In the winter, snow will fall, We can make a round snow- (pause) ball. In the spring, a flower grows, We can smell it with our (pause) nose. CHORUS Look outside and see the sun, Shining down on every- (pause) one. Following all the rules is cool, When we’re swimming in the (pause) pool. A rhyme is when you repeat a sound again, It usually happens at the end Of a line in a song or poetry, Thanks for rhyming along with me.
